poppy life cycle questions
    #3084288 - 09/02/04 09:07 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I want to plant some blue Persian poppies this fall so they will come up next spring.  But I'm moving when college is out and I would like to plant the seeds from this crop in my back yard.  If I just tie a balloon around the pods, how long does it take for the pods to release the seeds? :rasta:

Dude, i really don't know.  I just said fuck it and planted now anyway.  Besides, I live in Texas and we have hotter winters and cold nights.  I hope it works.

But anyway, I have heard that you just sprinkle them on the ground and cover with a little dirt.  After the snow melts the seeds do there thang.  But I am new to the world of opium so I can't give you an educated answer.  Hope all goes well for you bro.

Peace :flowerchild:

baloon?
your patches might start further than you'd like or it might fall in the middle of the city and end up crushed my a trucks wheel...
but it's not a bad idea at all... i believe the ideal would be to make a delayed release device on it rather than expecting for it to blow and fall...
ask the paraglider or single engine pilots of your region for a flight! :wink:
what the hell, hire a crop duster and do it right.

Sorry bro I guess I wasn't that descriptive. What I really meant was that i was going to put the pods inside the ballon. Like a sleeve, and tie the bottm of the ballon off so that when the seeds drop, they are stuck inside the balloon. This way I can save the seeds so i can plant them at my new house in the back yard. I just need to know how long it takes for the pods to drop the seeds. I have family around to worry about and I want the seeds before they see the pods.

Thanx

i think they will not release any seed until the pod gets broken or rotten somewhere!

you've got two typesof pods:

The one that opens with little holes under the top crown and the kind that doesnt open at all.

Both you can easily let ripen on the stem until the plant looks like upright-standing hay (very dead plant), then snip off the stems and either shake the seeds out of the holes or pop the closed capsules and then shake out the seed.

If you live in CLIMATE ZONE 7 or warmer (-20'C = 0'F winters or warmer, see stickypost) fallen seeds will sprout next year and once established you never need to sow again.

Remember to sow from your -biggest poppy capsules- as these give the prettiest flowers and the most poppyseed for your bagels :thumbup:

Remember to be careful: the poppy capsules are the most poisonous part of the plant, when dried on stem they are filled with dried up opium and we don't wanna mess with poison, would we? :wink:

dude, I would just plant them.
I have heard that they don't really do anything. Of course I am an amature with poppies, but It would be more fruitfull if you just plant them.

dude, sow the seeds in the coming weeks, wait three to five depending on where you're from.

poppies like the cold snap of winter to get them going. they're a bi-anual i believe. i've grown them, but i took my seeds and sown them during the spring, which left me with scraggly, yet beautiful, poppies, though no flowers come july and august. after that, the planter was inadvertantly "weeded" by the gardner of that particular garden. he didn't know i had been growing anything, and assumed they were weeds (again, no beautiful, almost blooming poppies to show)

I already planted mine and they are coming up.  They will be fine for the winter.  I live in Houston Texas and the weather stays warm with cold drops at night until about late November and sometimes even until late December.  They only take two months or so, so I should have a nice crop soon.  I'll keep you dudes posted.

Peace :rasta:
